On my laptop, that has an HD wide screen (1366X768) display, I can't see the sides of the screen (about a tenth on each side I'm guessing.), it poster boxes them so it is all black. Like it is trying to do not wide screen. If you could fix that, or at least make it so the resolution could be changed, and add windowed mode, that would be great.

I'll take a look at that for sure. In the meantime, you can [alt][enter] out of fullscreen. Might help. Thanks for letting me know!

I'm pretty sure I fixed it, but I can't confirm as the problem never existed on my home PC. :( If you have a chance to try it I'd love to know if it's good now. Thanks!

It works perfectly now! Thank you! Very fun! Runs great on my old laptop! If it works on that, it should work on just about anything able to run Windows 10.

Oh just one thing. The switches in the options, down is on? That is kind of backwards, kind of hard to tell what is on and off until messed with. I thought they were like light switches.
